The Creation of National (Cloud-Based) Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) Repositories & Databases to Enhance Collaboration Opportunities, and More.
FULL ARTICLE IS POSTED HERE:
TECHNOLOGY AND METHODS:
One possibility is the use of a secure Microsoft OneDrive Cloud service paired in combination with OneNote software. Specific method:
=>STEP#1: The private sector business will place their finished EOP within OneNote and synchronize it to their secure OneDrive Cloud within a labeled and dated EOP Folder.
=>STEP#2: This private sector business will then “Share” their “EOP Folder” (located on their OneDrive Cloud) with their Local Emergency Stakeholders.
=>STEP#3: The Local Police Department (in example as a member of the local emergency stakeholders and LEPC) could maintain a OneDrive Cloud service (or similar service) for the purpose of collecting all EOP’s that the Private Sector Businesses share.
=>STEP#4: All police departments in a given State will collect all (Local) private sector EOP’s and “share” (all of these collected EOP’s) with the State (as a large single synchronized combined secure Statewide OneDrive Cloud repository) or similar technology.
=>STEP#5: Each State will then periodically “Share” all collected EOP’s with a National Repository (a very large single National secure cloud storage site).
=>STEP#6: Additional repositories and databases may then be derived from the stored EOP’s at the discretion of a given Government Agency.
